Skyrim is great. With the help of the best Skyrim mods, it can be tuned to become basically the RPG game of your dreams – but it can be tweaked into something truly zany, too. Take a new mod, for example, that takes inspiration from a truly wacky Mario 64 hack to turn it into Skyrim: “Chaos Edition”.
Have you ever been running around the open-world game’s, well, vast open world and thought to yourself, “I wish completely random and unfair things would happen to me to spice things up a bit?” modder Jdc997 asks. Well, they’ve got a solution, regardless – a mod designed to “make your next Skyrim playthrough a little less…predictable”.
Their Skyrim ‘Chaos Edition’ mod is inspired by a fan-made Mario 64 creation of the same name, which essentially tinkers with the retro game’s code to throw all kinds of random effects the player’s way as they try to make their way through its levels. Effects included suddenly making Mario flat, unable to do things like open doors or jump (or, conversely, giving him super high jumping power), altering his and the game’s textures, and other similarly comical tweaks.
